EARTHQUAKE PROOF HOUSING PROJECT

Students will follow the Engineering Design Process (EDP) to creat models of buildings, test them on a “shake table”, analyze results, modify accordingly, and create a marketing “pitch” based on their models, results, and the perceived “fit” with local culture and needs.

Due Date:  Wednesday, January 10, 2017
